HS Red Cross Club raising money for vaccines in Africa

Posted: Updated:

The Red Cross Club of Boulder Creek High School will be hosting a special screening of Warner Brothers' The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on Friday, April 19, at 6 p.m. in the school's main auditorium to raise money for a cause close to their heart.

Admission is free. A $5 per person donation is suggested with all of the proceeds going towards measles vaccines for children in Africa.

Measles is one of the leading killers of children worldwide. The Measles Initiative has helped reduce measles deaths by 78 percent worldwide and by 92 percent in Africa.

"I joined the effort to start these movie nights because of the inspiring work of the other volunteers in Red Cross Club," said Bonnie Beaupied, who is the head of the club's Movie Night Committee. "They are unparalleled in their dedication and love of helping others. After watching all they did last year, I just had to get involved."
